Description : Prepared by Civil Engineering Research Foundation. This book presents findingsØof aØ1996 technology assessment mission to East Asia that examined the levels of technology is use and current research and development trends in the design and construction industries of China, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. Other areas of focus include the role of government- and industry-supported research and development in expediting design and construction innovation, key collaborative opportunities for U.S. industry, the development and application of "cleaner" design and construction technologies, construction-related import and export potential, and processes used to introduce new technologies into practice. The report makes recommendations for U.S. industry concerning technology needs and collaborative potential among the targeted East Asian design and construction industries

Description : After having been a Japanese colony for more than 35 years until 1945, the miraculous economic development in the southern half of the Korean peninsula has multiplied the nation's output nearly 38 times and expanded per capita income by 16 times from $778 to $12,422 (in year 2000 prices) and transformed from basically an agrarian economy to that of a major industrial power, which is now considered one of a dozen or so of most industrialized countries in the world, during the 43-year period between 1953 and 1996. This book is a study of development of the South Korean economy from the time of the cessation of the Korean War to date, based on available data with minimal historical description, focusing on investment, the sources and means of capital formation, which is one of the most critical factors that contributed to economic development, and the government role of in them for economic growth and structural changes. The approach in this study is more analytical (without being mathematical, statistical, or technical, but with supporting quantitative data) than historical. There are a number of studies on some aspects of capital formation and economic development in short articles, but there is no comprehensive study/analysis/book of capital formation and economic development of South Korea since the Korean War, other than this authors comprehensive study of capital formation and economic transformation of Korea before 1945 (1876-1945). Not only this book fills the void of study of the subject after the Korean War but it also complement my first volume. This study reveals a number of significant, though perhaps not all unique, patterns and characteristics of capital formation and economic development of South Korea. The combination of circumstances, approaches, and experiences in the country was in many respects unique in comparison to many developing and developed countries, including many Asian countries, such as Japan and China.
